For some reason I have resisting purchasing this product for a very long time. When I was in Boots recently and spotted it I explained that to my best/flat mate who I was in the store with. I didn't know why I avoided thois brand, I mean me I'll try anything once and twice if I like it and then it dawned on me why! The name. Sounds like a gel to wash womens bits with don't you think? I don't wanna use that all over myself but after a sniff of this body wash I decided it was time to have a try with it!
Well the bottle to me has an old fashioned appearance to it. It's light green coloured plastic bottle with a dent to the middle of the sides of the bottle for ease of handling and has a silver coloured flip top lid to the top if it concealing a small hole. On the front the label tells us that it is Fenjal 'Vitality' Revitalising Body Wash 'Invigorating and uplifting care for maturing skin. Revitalises and nourishes skin leaving it moisturised and radiant' and we are also told that it contains grapeseed oil and active vitamin B5 and C complex and there is a picture of some flowers on there. On the back label on the bottle other information listed includes being told a bit more about the product, the ingredients are listed, the size is given which in this case is 200ml (and the only size I have personally seen it sold in) and contact details for Fenjal are given. As I stated earlier, to me it is a rather old fashioned bottle in appearance but having said that it is in a nice retro, comforting way.
Well first off, per application you don't need very much of the opaque and slightly glossy white body wash at all. It lathers up on moist/wet skin with ease turning from a creamy consitiency to a more greasy one. When I say greasy it feels smooth but don't worry it rinses off leaving really hydrated and moisturised skin and it rinses off with incredible ease after giving off some white foam.
This leaves me feeling very clean, radiant? Not so sure though. Moisturised? Certainly and in a very pleasant way and it also leaves me with a very soft lingering scent of flowers on my skin for a long time too.
All In All:
This works out a rather economical body wash in the long run. Suitable for use in the bath and/or shower you don't need a lot of it cos a very small amount goes a very long way indeed. It's fragrance is very feminine and floral though what flowers its meant to smell off I'm not at all sure...apart from to say its not roses!
It makes my skin feel fresh, clean and smooth and above all is very kind to my dry skin areas without upsetting my more greasy bits. I like it...not as much as I like the Fenjal Classic but thats only because I prefer that because its a thicker body wash and smells even nicer than this...however I can recommend this particulary to the more mature amongst us!
Available in all good supermarkets and chemist, mine cost £2.99 in Boots.
